Assessing High Latitude Atmosphere-Ionophere Coupling: Ionospheric impacts of SSWs at high latitudes

Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (SSWs) are severe climatic events in the upper atmosphere, where the accumulated effect of planetary wave breaking results in a weakening of the stratospheric polar vortex, sometimes resulting in a reversal of the stratospheric zonal wind. Read more

Properties of evolved hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies. Historically spectroscopic studies of hot massive stars in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies have been restricted to small sample sizes. Read more

The Japanese Long-Baseline Neutrino Programme (T2K, SuperKamiokande and HyperKamiokande)

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The particle physics and particle astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield has a long-standing involvement in Japan’s long-baseline neutrino programme. Read more

Dark Matter Direct Detection in QUEST-DMC

The Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway is offering a PhD opportunity to search for dark matter in the QUEST-DMC experiment together with the London Low Temperature Laboratory, which is part of the European Microkelvin Platform. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Read more

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Searches for supersymmetry and dark matter particles with the ATLAS experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The student will work on the analysis of the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider to search for new particles that are postulated by Supersymmetry. Read more

Observational studies of massive star formation (2)

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Leeds is one of the leading institutes in the in the observational study of massive star formation. We have specific interests in the near infrared, radio and mm properties, since these can probe the disc around the young star, as well as the jets and winds it generates. Read more
